Smoke Ventilation Systems

Large over sized entrance vents required opening with twin actuators. A concealed multi-point window locking system was operated by Dyer locking drives. Controls were also directly linked into the Building Fire alarm. This smoke ventilation system is also covered by a long term maintenance contract.

Smoke & Natural Ventilation Systems

This residential development offered Dyer the opportunity to provide 2 different ventilation solutions.  Fully certified, reliable stand-alone smoke ventilation systems, incorporating discrete chain actuators and flush-mounting control panels within the communal areas, provided the peace of mind for the residents.  In addition, the all flat owners were provided with electronic control of their hard-to-reach kitchen windows using flush mounting transformer switches and RAL coloured chain actuators.  This provided simple, precise ventilation control from exceedingly quiet chain actuators.

Smoke Ventilation Systems

Our EN smoke-certified roof mounted domelights provided the final smoke exhaust at the top of stairwells and smoke shafts on this development.  The smoke shaft doors were automatically powered open using 1200mm stroke chain actuators and these all interfaced with the roof vents to provide the optimum smoke “chimney” design.  Multiple shafts and stairwells were operated using multi-zone control panels and multi-zone break glasses, all interfaced with the buildings’ fire alarm systems.
